Can I translate GD bbPress Tools plugin to my language?

Yes. POT file is provided as a base for translation in the root folder for each plugin. Translation files should go into languages directory, and WordPress must be set to your language to load the file. As an alternative, translation file can go into wp-content/languages/plugins directory.

The file name for translated and compiled MO file must be the same as POT file with the addition of language code: {plugin-name}-{language-code}.mo.

You can check out this for translating plugins using POEdit program:

Does GD bbPress Tools plugin works with WordPress MultiSite installations?

Yes. Each site in the network can activate and use the plugin.

Why BBCodes are not working?

There are few reasons for BBCodes not working:

  1. You have disabled BBCodes in the plugin.
  2. You have disabled some of the BBCodes in the plugin.
  3. You are using some 3rd party plugin that is causing problems.

The plugin that is often causing problems with BBCodes is ‘bbPress Advanced Statistics’, and this plugin will disable all Shortcodes/BBCodes by default. Either configure it properly to allow shortcodes, or remove it.

Why GD bbPress Tools plugin's JavaScript files are not loaded?

All Dev4Press plugins and addons require jQuery. But, they will work only if the jQuery is loaded with the WordPress proper Enqueue method. If you are replacing jQuery that comes with WordPress with some other version loaded from other location, my plugins will not function properly, and that goes the same for most of the other WordPress plugins that depend on the proper way for loading jQuery.

Click on Quote button doesn't add quoted content?

This happens if the plugin’s JavaScript is not loaded. Make sure that both CSS and JavaScript options are enabled. If that doesn’t help, make sure to enable ‘Always Include’ option too.

Some features not working with BuddyPress group forums?

This happens if the plugin’s JavaScript is not loaded. Make sure that both CSS and JavaScript options are enabled and ‘Always Include’ option is also enabled.

Some BuddyPress features break when I use BuddyPress Nuovo templates?

The problem is caused by the Italic BBCode due to the conflict with the Underscore templates system BuddyPress uses. There are two ways to solve this:

  • You can disable Italic BBCode (Forums -> Tools -> BBCodes -> Disable BBCodes) or,
  • You can limit BBCodes to the bbPress content only (Forums -> Tools -> BBCodes -> bbPress Only). If you do this, BBCodes will work only with bbPress topics, replies and forums.
Does GD bbPress Tools plugin works with BuddyBoss Platform?

We do not support BuddyBoss Platform integration for any of our bbPress-related plugins.

Dev4Press plugins for bbPress right now all require bbPress 2.6.2 or newer version, and old 2.5 versions of bbPress are no longer supported! BuddyBoss uses very outdated bbPress 2.5.12 (from 2017), which means that Dev4Press plugins for bbPress will not allow activation with bbPress 2.5.x (and because of the old version, it will not be active with BuddyBoss also). On top of that, BuddyBoss has made significant changes to the bbPress they are using, so a lot of stuff is not compatible anymore with the standalone bbPress plugin. Also, BuddyBoss uses BuddyPress 4.3, released in 2019 (the current standalone BuddyPress is 11.1.0 in May 2023), and again, their version of BuddyPress is significantly changed from the standalone BuddyPress, making the compatibility a huge issue.

Even if the BuddyBoss gets updated to bbPress 2.6 or newer, we have no plans of supporting BuddyBoss with our plugins due to the changes they made to bbPress, making proper support impossible.

This FAQ will be updated when something with bbPress or BuddyBoss changes.

TLDR: Dev4Press plugins for bbPress can’t be used with the BuddyBoss platform.

Can I translate GD bbPress Tools plugin to my language?

All Dev4Press free and lite plugins can be translated via WordPress.org and their translation services. Each plugin on WordPress.org has support for translation, and you can get to it through the plugin Developer panel. To translate plugins on WordPress.org, you need a WordPress.org account. But, if you want to handle translations on your own, each plugin has a POT file with the list of all translation strings
